I went to my local NAPA store and was able to get refills. I think the cost was under $15. The part number for mine is 6024-01

You could try to bring one of your old ones with you and see if they can refill it.

They need to look in the heavy truck section of the book.

Not to hyjack your thread but a question that is wiperblade related.
I see lots of RV with tennis balls keeping the arms off the glass when parked. I assume to prevent the blades from getting a perm curve to them.
Any thoughts on this?

I would think that and also so the rubber does not build up on the windshield.

We do it to keep the heat and deflection set off the blades.

I swapped out my 32" for 28". 28" refills can be found anywhere.

damndanyboy.......If you buy the Truvision brand Tru Vision Wipers Blade Solutions they'll run you about $35.00 each online. My local RV store had them for $42.00 each. I just bought some for a neighbor's coach last week.

As "beaverfever" stated Costco (in the oil/automotive section) has the GoodYear wiper blades for either $7.00 or $9.00 for the 28". If you can live with the shorter length, Costco's price is great. We live in California and it rarely rains so the shorter ones are fine.

To protect my wipers while parked between trips, I use the A/C foam wrap tubes that you can buy at Home Depot. It's split down the length of the tube and completely covers the wiper while lifting it off the windshield. Just cut it to length.

Somewhere I heard to cover them with foam pipe insulation for sun protection.

Rob I keep my wipers protected with wiper covers. They are about $25 and look like heavy duty screening.They keep the wipers off the hot windshield so they don't "fuse" to the windshield and they provide a degree of UV protection keeping the blade in better shape. My blades are about $75 to replace so I take care of them
